Notes on this piece
The Psalms are 3000 old... then... Book of Psalms, Sepher Tehillim, Zabur, one version for each monotheistic tradition. A composition of David? a collective and anonymous composition?... a savage poetry, archaic - attached to the origins - chaotic, without logic neither moral... (Claude Régy).The Psalm 55 has a striking contemporary resonance: the "town" dominated by the conflict, the violence, the war; the man excluded, isolated, constantly in flight; looking for the god's answer; prayer, call, scream, complaint; absence of God? Here, in french and in greek, the text  is used as a vehicle of phonetic colors and as a "guide" for the form narratives. Melted in the sound, rarely perceived, the text is audible by moments deliberately brightened by a fragmented writing: a procedure of extraction of strophes and verses, of words, of syllables and of vowels isolated of the consonants. The vocal writing is based on three principal vocal modes, speaking-singing-screaming, regularly found in the psalms. Here the singing is generally represented by fluid and continuous textures (glissandi), the two others by pointillistic textures or discontinuous sections (rhythms or chords).
